Canadian furniture manufacturing giant known as Huppé currently operates inside of a metropolitan building within a commercial industrial park providing a wide range of home and office furniture. However, this business once began humbly within a basement by a family of three brothers named Raymond, Aurèle and Sylvio Hamel. They started with the solid design of an elegantly crafted cedar chest and a plan to become a household name. Gradually expanding from one place to another, Huppé grew as a company while adding a variety of other modern furnishings to serve local, regional and eventually national clientele with an unwavering vision of endless possibilities.
Understanding the consumer’s prevailing propensity toward an interior aesthetic of contemporary minimalism, Huppé created the Plank QUEEN Upholstered Storage Bed with a show stopping wide headboard of solid birch. With absolute intrigue, it not only delivers the unmitigated comfort one would expect from Huppé crafted products, but also, this levitating oasis of slumber provides a fashionable answer to a common quandary. The spacious and unexpected compartment hidden beneath the mattress within the base of the fabric or leather wrapped platform offers discreet containment for the storage of additional pillows, linens or other personal items.
Huppé is also revered for blending function with expressive design as indicated with the ILLUSION 60” SIDEBOARD/Buffet. This cutting-edge rendering of unconventional creativity stands authoritatively as a fascinating work of art with its dimensional austerity and the rural charm of its smoked oak constitution. Behind the low profile cabinet doors is the stylish concealment for serving dishes, dining linens or related room ornamentation while the sliding drawers offer the ideal organizational compartment for cutlery or items of ambient illumination.
Appropriately named, the ESCAPE 56″ Media Base with Lacquered Sliding Top provides the optimal escape to a world of riveting entertainment with its extendable TV base and L-shaped lacquered top. The asymmetric resolution of this mesmerizing piece transforms it from a media station to a captivating focal point for all to enjoy. The accessible storage options allow for media components and accessories to function unobtrusively while the sliding top acts as a mobile TV stand smoothly moving in multiple directions to ensure the most favorable viewing from every room vantage point.
Although the Hamel family eventually stepped down after many years in the business, the current owner, Jean-François Nolin runs Huppé today in Quebec with the same dedication and hope that the Hamel brothers had when they started out in 1967. Helping families to create their perfect living spaces with spectacular contemporary furniture that not only beautifies their surroundings, but also meets their every need continues to be the Huppé vision.
